Ten Color Basics

Ten Color Basics


Special to HGTV.com, Mark McCauley lays out ten rules for using colour, the first of which interests me most: the 60-30-10 rule. Those three numbers relate to percentages of colour that will make for the most aesthetically appealing. The percentages are shown in room photographs, but McCauley makes mention of using that same idea if wearing a suit, and I dare to think it applies with most any other combination of clothing. McCauley visits other design and coordination concepts, such as colour schemes, remembering that using black is okay, using colours from patterns, drawing from nature, and bringing the colours home before you buy them.
